News: Harris signed a one-year contract with the Vikings on Thursday, according to the Duluth News-Tribune.
Impact: The 26-year-old former UDFA served as Green Bay's No. 3 running back in 2014, piling up 64 rushing yards on just 16 carries, along with 11 yards on a lone reception. It's still unclear whether Adrian Peterson will be back with the Vikings next season, but even if the six-time Pro Bowler isn't around, Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will enter training camp ahead of Harris in the pecking order. Harris will probably have to fight for a roster spot, regardless of what happens with Peterson.

News: Minnesota signed Harris on Thursday.
Impact: Harris missed all of the 2013 season with a knee injury and appeared in 15 games for the Packers last season. He carried the ball 16 times for 64 yards and could give the Vikings depth at the position if they part with Adrian Peterson.

News: Harris won't be tendered a contract by the Packers and will become a free agent Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: After missing the 2013 season due to a knee injury, Harris played third banana in the Packers' depth chart at running back in 2014, recording 16 rushes for 64 yards and one catch for 11 yards in 15 contests. He also acted as the primary kick returner for part of the year, averaging 20.7 yards on 22 returns. Expect him to catch on with another organization as a reserve RB.
